in washington, right now, about the fiscal cliff? president obama says, look, let's extend the bush tax cuts, lower tax rates for 98% of all taxpayers including the middle class, right now. we can -- i'll sign it today. took out his pen at the news conference and the republicans saying, no, no, no, we can't do that until we decide what we'll do with the top 2% of taxpayers. why wouldn't the middle class voter look at that and say, these guys, the g.o.p., are all about protecting the rich? >> chris, two things, one, we as a republican party need to make it clear and we will make it clear we are not the party of big. big businesses, big banks, big wall street, big bailouts, when it comes to the tax code, the republican party have toic mate clear we are for a lower, flatter, simpler tax code and you can maintain progress sift and there are ideas to limit deductions and get rid of carvouts and we aren't the party trying to protect the rich. we are the party that wants growth, pro-growth parties and let the democratic party be a government growing revenues and we want to grow the private sector a
% say a minor effect, 2% no effect, 10% say they don't know, which is why you're watching this right now. president obama says they're centering around increasing tax on the wealthy which will go a good way in increasing the revenue that he wants to raise in the next decade in an attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to reinstate the bush tax cut which goes to the top 2% of earners. that would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second one would go from 36% to 39%. he's been focusing on this specific number since his reelection which suggests he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well he's talking about. taxes on investment gain would also go up. the capital gains tax would go from 15% to 20% and dividend taxes would go from 50% to the income tax rate. as i showed you, 39.6%. president obama argues this will hurt people with savings and dividend stocks, but the overall investment gains are enjoyed by the wealthy. this, again, would target that rich group that president obama is
, that he had not actually done. but what happened right before that at that debate was president obama defending susan rice and hillary clinton directly, by their titles, and condemning as offensive mitt romney trying to say that that attack was being covered up or that the country was being misled about it. that is what we saw again today on full blast, at the president's first press conference after being re-elected. the beltway common wisdom on this is that president obama is picking a fight with his secretary of state nomination if he does pick susan rice for that position. and when the beltway accuses you of picking a fight, they always mean, oh, no, no, you shouldn't do that. but seeing the president up there talking about this today with such fire in the belly and seeing as he did that as well in the debate when the same subject came up, i think this may be something more than just picking a fight. there's plenty of reason to be angry, to be concerned about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. it is very much worth being angry about the people who carried out that attack,
. >> chris: stay tuned. we'll be right back. >> president barack obama: my hope is that this is going to be the beginning of a fruitful process, where we are able to come to an agreement, that will reduce our deficit. >> we're serious about cutting spending and solving our fiscal dilemma and i believe we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that is right in front of us today. >> chris: president obama and speaker boehner sounding up beat friday about prospects for cutting a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff and we're back now with the panel. so, after the president and congressional leaders met at the white house, on friday, the rhetoric was reassuring, the question is, is it real? do you get any sense, bob and this is the subject of your new book, that they really do see, are beginning to see a path to a compromise or are they trying to reassure nervous consumers before the christmas holidays and, investors because the stock market is done a thousand points. >> everyone is nervous about this. this is the last chance and the next six weeks could be six weeks that shook the united state

a minor infect. only 2% say no effect. 10% say they don't know which is why you're watching this right now. president obama's solution to all this is to make a deal centered around increasing taxes on the wealthy which will go a good part of the way to raising the $1.6 trillion in new revenue that he wants to raise over the next decade in his attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire. if that happens, the top tax rate on income would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second top rate would go from 33% to 36%. now this is what president obama campaigned on. he's been vague about the specific numbers since his re-election which suggests that he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well that he's talking about. taxes on investment gains would also go up. the capital gains tax could go from 15% to 20% and dividend taxes would go from 15% to the income tax rate. as i showed you, 39.6%. mitt romney argue this is would hurt individuals with savings and who
these things. >> listen, will, president obama is not handing out gifts. all right. he is being a president. now the only thing i found really consistent with this is that romney has been ehe is not rnlly hating on half the country for almost two years. i didn't necessarily find his comments out of line with everything else he has talked about. we have been characterizing them as gaffs. this is how he is. he believes half the country is a bunch of moochers. what is interesting, if you strip away the areas, urban areas, predominantly minority, he still lost a whole bunch of white people too. the man is refusing to take personal responsibility, which is the height of irony when you think about what he talked about with the 47% much the people not being responsible for their own lives. here, he lost an election mostly because of the fact that he was a bad option. the gop knows he was a bad option. that's why they fought him so hard during primary. he was a bad choice. but they ended up with him. reluctantly had to get behind him. now what you are seeing is the chickens coming home to roost. >>
a thumb in barack obama's eye. but jonathan is completely right. he picked the wrong person here. susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi. but, look, the republicans are facing an electoral wipeout in the last election. they still want to oppose barack obama any way they can, but what's their excuse? because the american people have now chosen barack obama over the republican guy. so what do they do? they have to gin up a conspiracy, a scandal of some sort, something they can attach the word gate to. now it's benghazi-gate. >> ron, you got it. this is the big alternative universal view of their world view in which you don't know what color the sky is over there. but they believe that this is as big as watergate and although nixon got re-elected in '72, he will come down by '74 even though this guy won in '12, he will come down by '14 because of this big gate ron mentioned. they have it in their head this is big time. >> in 1997 after bill clinton got re-elected but before lewinsky, the republicans tried to do the same thing on chinese fund-raising. remember that? they spent the bette

talking about the mandate, right? does obama have a mandate? you hear paul ryan say no, there's no mandate there. the republicans won the house so they have some kind of mandate. and he addresses that very issue in this op-ed. he said whatever it was -- >> they like a split government not for more squabbling. and i think that is 100% clear. >> wall street after 2008 overwhelmingly supporting obama, they supported romney in the 2012 election. >> right. >> you wonder how much of this is wul street and big business who are now saying we're ready to roll up our sleeves and work with president obama, trying to make nice with him, right? they've got four more years of a democratic -- right? >> remember, we're not such a remarkable points of clarity on a lot of the platforms between obama and romney but one of them was romney said i'll get rid of dodd frank, all this regulation. he was definitely going to be bank and wall street friendly. obama, we know where he stands on that. i think he is a lot less friendly than a lot of people on wall street think he is, but this is definitely the election i
with john mccain and the way the rest of congress is viewing him on this? >> right. so you've been covering this well in the sense that republicans are not used to the obama administration pushing back. they're not used to the obama coming with a fire in the belly and really confronting them on accusations and insinuations that they've been launching for the last four years without a lot of resistance, without a lot of contradiction. let's remember the politicization of the benghazi issue started with the mitt romney campaign, on the night of the attack. he then harangued the entire republican caucus into joining him on that. now the mitt romney campaign is gone leaving guys like john mccain holding the bag. he's committed to the strategy and has to go forward. now that president obama called him out on public television during a press conference, he has no choice but to double down. and stories like these where he missed the hearing that he was calling for undermine his argument that the obama administration is not giving him enough information. and pushes him back into the argument the ob
that republican congressman call president obama a liar. is he right? >> no. and that is absolutely outrageous, carol. and i think that is what is leading to this kind of protracted and ugly fight, which is exactly what the american people did not want coming out of this election. they wanted their leaders to work together and on something as important as benghazi, i think that every party leader needs to understand that they should dial it down a notch and really feg out what happened here. we're talking about the deaths of four americans. we're talking about an ten intelligence community that is under fire. that should be important to both parties. and ei agree with ron, we need o figure out what the cia knew, what general petraeus knew. it also goes to susan rice, ambassador rice and what she said, which came directly from the talking points that the intelligence community put together for her. so we all need to step back and really work together to figure out what happened here. >> the strange thing, if general petraeus is to blame when he was cia director, he's already gone. you can't exa
